New World Stages Presents a Western Tale Shakes Up a Shakespearean Classic

Saddle up for a new twist on a Shakespearean classic! Desperate Measures, a Broadway musical based on the classic tale Measure for Measure, comes to New World Stages on Saturday, November 10th at 8:00 p.m. Fans of theatre old and new will relish this Western comedy!

When the dangerously handsome Johnny Blood’s life is on the line, he must put his fate into the hands of a colorful cast of characters including a mysterious sheriff, an eccentric priest, an authoritarian governor, a saloon girl gone good, and a nun out of the habit. Before the sun sets, will they rise up and pull off the greatest caper yet, or will Johnny be left hanging?

Desperate Measures won acclaim with Drama Desk Awards for Best Music and Best Lyrics. Additionally, the musical received the Outer Critics Circle and Off-Broadway Alliance Awards for Best Musical from its run at the York Theatre in 2017.
